As a company which has operated successfully for decades on a worldwide scale, the Amstetten-based Umdasch Group has once again demonstrated a significant growth dynamic in 2011 within its companies Doka Division (concrete formwork technology) and Umdasch Shopfitting Division (shopfitting). By the end of 2010 a considerably improved economic environment was in evidence; during 2011 this resulted in revenues of € 968 million for the Umdasch Group, an increase of seven percent; there was an equally encouraging increase in the result of ordinary business activities to € 73 million (an increase of 22 percent!). This optimistic outlook for the future was also evident in the 41 percent increase in investment volume (a total of € 55 million). Worldwide the Umdasch Concern employed an average staff of approx. 7,100 in 2011 (an increase of 3.4 percent) – the current total is approx. 7,300. A stable and positive economic climate in most markets allows us to expect a continuation of this encouraging trend in 2012.
